Footprint art is a wonderful way to capture a moment in time from your child’s life. Grandparents will especially appreciate this type of gift for Christmas. Turn their feet into adorable snowmen in just a few easy steps. Simply paint onto their feet and print onto paper. You could turn the print into reindeer, penguins and other winter creatures that you like. Kids always enjoy this and so do their parents. It's a super simple craft and you only need a few supplies such as paint and paper. You can get as creative as you like with it and it's a great activity to keep them amused.
